Homes for Lambeth showcased for carbon reduction targets

We are delighted that two of our schemes; Patmos Lodge and Hydethorpe Road feature in the New London Architecture’s (NLA) Zero Carbon London Report.

New London Architecture (NLA) is the world’s leading centre for excellence for the built environment. Their purpose is to improve the quality of people’s lives by making London a better place to live, work and visit. 

The report by the NLA showcases 80 projects that are pushing the bar of environmental design and contribute to London’s ambition to become a low carbon city. You can see the full report here (our two schemes can be found on page 88 and 92).

Lambeth Council has committed to achieving net-zero carbon targets by 2030, in order to achieve that target, Homes for Lambeth is ensuring all new homes built reduce CO2 emissions and introduce new and better green spaces for residents.

Our proposals at Patmos Lodge and Hydethorpe Road are examples of how we are tackling the climate challenge. 

Patmos Lodge 

By utilising energy efficient design through fabric ‘Be Lean’ measures, air-source heat pumps in each home and the provision of solar panels, the site will achieve a reduction in regulated CO2 emissions of 78.3% using SAP 10.1 CO2 emission factors, which is well above the minimum 35% London Plan target.

Hydethorpe Road

By utilising energy efficient design through fabric ‘Be Lean’ measures, air-source heat pumps in each home and the provision of solar panels, the site will achieve a reduction in regulated CO2 emissions of 71.9% using SAP 10.1 CO2 emission factors, which is well above the minimum 35% London Plan target.

Both schemes have had Dynamic Overheating Assessment carried out which shows that the development has been built to comply with the current guidance and will enable the development to adapt to climate change. The principals of a circular economy will be incorporated into all stages of these developments and materials will be selected based on their environmental impact and responsible sourcing certification. A Whole Life Cycle Carbon Emissions Assessment will be carried out across all RIBA stages and the developments will also benefit from Sustainable Drainage Systems such as biodiverse roofs and permeable paving.
